Advertising supports the free content and digital user experiences that we all love. Our goal is to make advertising more effective by helping our customers to display ads that may be of interest to you. We believe that relevant ads are more valuable to users than less relevant ads. More relevance also helps the services that depend on advertising because advertisers pay more for effective ads, which in turn leads to higher quality and richer consumer experiences.
